Launched September 2011 in global travel retail, Metaxa 12 Stars is a blend of three ingredients:
1) A double pot still distilled brandy made from wine produced from Savatiano, Soultanina and Koritnthiakos grape varieties and aged a minimum of 12 years in Limousin oak casks. 2) Aged aromatic Muscat wines from the hand-tended and hand-picked terraced vineyards on the semi-mountainous slopes of Mount Ambelos on the Aegean Islands of Samos, and 3) an infusion of Mediterranean herbs and May rose petals. The final blend is married in oak barrels for one year before being chilled filtered and bottled.
